Hopes and Fears. Since the tragic death in Liverpool of toddler Jamie Bulger , much has been said and written about the morality of the nation's youth. But one voice has remained unheard - that of the children themselves. Now Everyman talks to young people about their own values. Sharon wants to clear the drug addicts out of Liverpool and her ambition is to be a zoologist or a hairdresser. Nirena wants to improve school dinners and stop racism. Dave wants to avoid having his kneecaps broken by local drug dealers. Using a study of 15,000 teenagers, the programme reveals their hopes for the future and their fears of what may prevent them making the distinction between what is right and wrong.
